Troo Bloo You Cheese



Troo Bloo You is an English blue cheese made from sheep's milk.

It is firm but moist.

The milk is curdled with vegetarian rennet. The mould culture used is penicillium roqueforti, but the maker uses a mixture of different strains of this mould.

At 2 months old, the cheese is mild and sweet. At 8 months, it is as strong as Roquefort.

It is sold in 5 1/2 pound (2.5 kg) rounds, wrapped in dark blue foil.



History Notes

Troo Bloo You is made by Rodney Whitroth through his company, Abbey Gold.


Whitroth was educated at Eton. He started experimenting with cheeses using milk from sheep on his uncle's farm, Abbey Farm in Goosey (meaning "Goose Island") near Wantage, Oxfordshire. The farm was part of the land owned by Abingdon Abbey up until the 1530s.

The cheese won the BBC Good Food Trophy at Blenheim Palace on 24 September, 2004.

Language Notes

The You refers to Ewe, female sheep.
